for later this morning after senators joe manchin and pat toomey suggested a compromise on background checks. both conservatives and liberals are criticizing the budget plan. speaker boehner said he's impressed with parts of the plan. is this the first step towards an agreement? we're just hours away from a vote on a gun violence bill in the senate. it will allow the debate to begin on the senate floor. it will be the background check compromise from senator joe manchin and toomey. it does not call for checks between family members and neighbors. bipartisan compromise is giving legislation new life. they both have a ratings from the nra. they say it's the right thing to do. >> i'm a gun owner. and the rights that aren sidelined in the second amendment are very important to me personally. my record shows this. i've got to tell you candidly i don't consider criminal background checks to be gun control. i think it's just common sense. if you pass a criminal background check you get to buy a gun. it's no problem. it's the people who fail, criminal or mental health background check we don't want

pennsylvania and joe manchin from west virginia. but we've got a long way to go, even if it does pass. we've got more work that we have to do. and i think people of goodwill, if we focus on the children, if we focus on what could have happened, if we took steps years ago, that olivia engel, for example, a 6-year-old who was going to appear in a nativity play that night as an angel. so if we focus on those children and answer their question that we -- or the question they would be asking us, have you taken every step possible to make sure that this can't happen again. and that is a -- that's the question that we've got to ask ourselves, especially those of us who have a vote. >> i want to play a quick clip. this is from senator joe manchin today who got emotional when he talked about his meeting some of the families in washington from sandy hook. >> i'm a parent. i'm a grandparent. i can't imagine. >> you got it. >> let's all share. i can't imagine. i had to do something. >> carlee, i've got four kids. i've got a sister. i've got two brothers. if something like what happened to vicki happe

disappointment to the democratic senator from west virginia, joe manchin, the republican senator from pennsylvania toomey, both of whom had an a rating from nra and wanted to go ahead and do this they said to change things post newtown but couldn't convince enough senators particularly republicans to go along with it expanding background checks just to gun shows and internet sales. too many senators said they didn't think this was the right way to go. this is probably the closest they thought they could come to changing gun laws. there will be other amendments but in terms of a real prize for those looking to expand gun restrictions this was it and it didn't happen. >> how much of this was because of principled opposition to the amendment and how much an issue of risk/reward. in other words there was very little potential reward because it was probably never going to pass the house of representatives even if it was going to be voted on in the house. for some senators it might not even have been worth the risk of voting for it since it wouldn't have become law. >> reporter: a great que

in the senate and president obama said it was very important and he fought hard for it. we have joe manchin a-rating from the nra and pat toomey, agreeing. there are a hundred loopholes in it but some sort of background check. obviously this passed. >> the order of the senate. the vote on the vote, the nays are 46. under the previous order requiring 60 votes for the adoption of this amendment. the amendment is not agreed to. >> cenk: not agreed to. now of course 54 used to be a majority these days they just assume that you need to get to 60 because the republicans let's be very clear about this, filibustered this bill, a bill that 91% of americans agreed with. a larger number because 91% believe in background checks. the president was not happy about the circumstance. let's go to his reaction. >> i'm going to speak plainly and honestly about what's happened here because the american people are trying to figure out how can something have 90% support yet not happen? i've heard folks say having the families of victims lobby for this legislation was some how misplaced. a prop, somebody called it.

by senators pat toomey and joe manchin. senator chuck schumer agreed not to appear when the two rolled o out the deal, because toomey didn't want to stand next to them, for political reasons. senator mark kirk, also co-sponsor of the compromise also agreed not to appear. at the news conference, toomey and manchin said all parties, including the nra, had been in the room. >> i've got to tell you, candidly, i don't consider criminal background checks to be gun control. >> we've taken all sides into consideration. have the nra sitting there, all people on all sides of the gun issue. >> have the nra sitting there, which then confirms exactly what we've been hearing about what happened two nights ago. while it was clear from the outset the nra would not support the bill, the question was, would they oppose it? well, now we've got an answer. being at the table did not stop the nra from releasing this letter it sent to senators after dinner last night. "the nra is unequivocally opposed to s. 649. in addition, the nra will oppose any amendments offered to. 649 that restrict fundamental second amendm

for victims of gun violence. >> i want to play a little of what joe manchin and pat toomey said on "morning joe." >> i know this does nothing to infringe the rights of law-abiding citizens. if it did, i wouldn't be for it. >> we are assuring them them as nra members, a sportsman all my life, this bill doesn't allow government infringement. it takes none of your rights away. >> carrie, right after newtown, people said someone like a joe manchin would have to step up. someone who has street cred with the nra. same with pat toomey. both of them with an "a" rating. does it surprise people that two nra backed lawmakers are being dismissed in this way by the nra? it just seems as though this is a non-negotiable issue for the nra and they don't care who the faces of this legislation are. >> they have certainly made that clear in the last 24 hours coming out against it. they decided these interest groups in washington score the votes of lawmakers in washington. that affects their "a" rating. they decided not to score the vote today and that's why we may have seen more republicans, many with "a" rat
